Campus Message 12.19.16

Dear Colleagues,

Early this month, you received an email from the UIC Survey Research Laboratory requesting your feedback on an online survey as part of the five year review of the Vice Chancellor for Research, Dr. Mitra Dutta. As stated in the email, every five years the Vice Chancellors at UIC will undergo a comprehensive performance evaluation. I have appointed an executive review committee, chaired by Vice Chancellors Robert Barish and Susan Poser, to conduct this review.

The online survey you received asks about your feedback on the many services offered by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (OVCR) to our faculty, staff and students. Your voluntary participation is valuable to this effort and the UIC Survey Research Laboratory (SRL) will keep your responses confidential.

The survey will be made available through January 16th, and I hope you will spend a few minutes of your time to complete the survey. Should you have any questions about the survey or if you did not receive a link to the survey, please contact Gabriela Avila at SRL, at (312) 996-0893 or by e-mail at

Thank you in advance for your participation.


Michael D. Amiridis
